From Steepster

Grown in the mountains of Kagoshima’s Kirishima district, this is naturally shaded by low cloud cover and mist, concentrating and focusing the leaf color and aroma. The long, almost black, needle shaped leaves unfurl slowly presenting a refined, buttery cup.

Great sencha, probably my favorite tea in April’s steepster select package.

First steep (185, 1 min): Tastes like a vegetable medley cooked in butter. Very vegetal and buttery smooth finish.

Second steep (185, 1 min): Similar to first steep, much more toned vegetal flavor but the butter finish is still present.

Decent caffeine buzz.

Flavors: Butter, Vegetal

I didn’t forget I had this one to sample. I’m still trying to get over the allergy/cold that won’t quit. I opened the packet and found that I could smell the vegetal goodness of the dry leaf and figured now was as good a time as any to try it out! The green leaves smell very much like fresh veggies to me. Thought I can’t place which veggies. Not a problem, as I think I’m going to like this one!

I will admit the first sip was like buttah! If you get the reference I’m very proud of you! In fact it reminded me more of a Gyokuro and less like a Sencha. Yup that’s how smooth this tea is. Yes, the steeped leaves smell good enough to eat. Though I’m not quite brave enough for that one! The flavors profile on this tea are SPOT ON. It certainly does taste very savory with a lovely buttery finish. I paired it with eggs and sausage this morning because, well why not. I must say this was not a bad choice at all. The flavors play so well together.

The short of it is this is a VERY good Sencha. As you know I’ve very picky about by green teas. But I would buy this one again…once I sip down at least twenty teas in my cabinet. I’m almost out of room and I have NO idea how that happened. Ok I totally know how that happened.
